SHARING CLASSES & FUN STUFF COME SEE
Hello, this is my first post filled with only links. I have to admit it's making me happy, love sharing good things with others. These are all things that are inspiring me to me right now and hope they will be to you also. These are in random order and I hope the links are right, if not I aplogize in advance and let me know if you need help finding them. I also want to SHOUT OUT A HUGE THANK YOU THANK YOU for all the support and sweet comments left on my PL 2013 post, YOU LADIES ROCK!! I can't tell you how nervous this made me even though you are always supportive of what I share and encorage me. I didn't want anyone to think Project Life wasn't important to me anymore. FAR FROM THE TRUTH, it will ALWAYS be close to my heart and my favorite thing EVER in my life. So thanks lady for letting me know you still love my new mini Pl style. With that being said my first link is going to the lady who inspired me to do since she is doing it this way also. I know I shared the link the other day for her blog but a little later today she will have her first week's pages up and I want to share them with you. I LOVED them so much when she gave me a sneek peek, THANKS KAREN!! So please stop by and visit and maybe say hello if you'd like. Here is her link and remember she usually posts a little around noon?? This lady actually posts everyday and I love that!! http://www.Karenika.com/ she is calling her album the Savor Project by the way not PL like we do. Every Thursday she will have it posted if you want to follow it along. Next up is a class that I signed up for without planning on it. Just stumbled upon it and fits 2 of my plans this year, scrapbooking and The Happiness Project book by Gretchen Rubins. The class is taught by Lain Ehmann and she has done this before but I've never signed up. She is teaching what is called LOAD, meaning " A Layout a Day" for the month of February and she is having Gretchen do some speaking and helping with this class. It's all about Happiness in our scrapping and our homes which is what Gretchen's second book is all about. I am hoping this class will help me scrap everyday next month, imagine all those pages I will get done, YIPPPEEE!! The class is $50 so head over and check it out and would love to have you join me and have a month full of HAPPINESS. http://www.layoutaday.com The next VERY EXCITING news is "12 Months of Christmas", the idea came to my friends in Australia. They had a crafing day over the weekend and talked about waht they didn't get done for the holidays and there is never enough time. Well they came up with the idea of spreading it thru all 12 months this year and getting things done now before the rush of the season. WOW WOW WOW!! I LOVE LOVE this idea so much and NEED this since a lot of my projects/ideas didn't get done either. Doesn't that sound like fun and how awesome that we can all share and motivate each other. Susan is going to provide a link every month too so we can see others projects. They have decided the first project is going to be a tree skirt but you can work on anything you want if that isn't something you need. I would suggest following Susan's blog so you will know when to link up and share. She will be giving out more info later but for now here is her direct link to the post announcing the idea. The other two friends are Tracey and Linda who are just as awesome as Susan. These threee do amazing and fun things together when they craft. Let me know what you think and REALLLLY hope you join this. http://stitchscrapsew.blogspot.com/2013/01/the-12-months-of-christmas.html I love the name of her blog too, sums it all up right there. There is also a "30 Days of Lists" coming up in March, for all those who like to make lists this is the class for you. I've done this about 3 times I think and always have fun and meet some of my dearest friends that I still have now. Sorry I don't have the link just yet but wanted to give you a heads up for now. Let me know if you are interested and I will make sure you get the link. I believe there will be a small charge last year it was $8 and you get a few perks and chances to win prizes. What it entails is an email with a writing prompt delievered to you by email everyday for the month and they provide a flickr acct to share your pages. This can be whatever you want it to be fancy, simple, scrapping, art jouranling ANYTHING GOES! That's all I have for now, hoping to post some of my own personal projects for the year with you next week, and sharing my oldests first photo/words she sent me. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!! Please let me know if the links don't work, hoping I did this right and PLEASE let me know what you think and that YOU WILL JOIN ME for the event ones!! Thanks ladies, have a great weekend and for my Australia friends, stay cool and safe over there in the extreme hot weather you are having!!
